Which telematics solutions can assist in EU law compliance on driving and rest times?

At the beginning of this year, a local business owner approached Mapon for a consultation on digital tachograph rule compliance matters and how telematics solutions could help his business in the future. The situation was this – he at that moment was dealing with a court case threatening to revoke his license due to tachograph rule violations. While this is a common occurrence, it’s also easily avoidable. From reminders and basic tachograph data downloads to smart analysis tools that will do the thinking for you, introducing telematics solutions in your fleet might be the answer you’re looking for.  There are several regulations issued at the EU level and even additional ones on the national level that concern tachograph follow-up matters, the most widely-known being Regulation (EC) No 561/2006 and now – the Mobility package.

In this article we’ll introduce you to Mapon solutions that can help manage your fleet’s tachograph data and make sure you always stay in line with EU rules and regulations.
